Hi we only have a few chickens two 14 months old legbars and two bluebells who haven't started to lay yet. My legbars had been laying well until three weeks ago when both stopped one has been moulting for over two weeks how long will she moult for and return to laying?

New feathers will take a few more weeks, those hens will probably go on their winter break and start laying again early in the new year.

Thank you we'll just have to hope the bluebells lay soon!

I don't know what elegant moulting is but my quail are blooming ugly right now! Bits sticking up all over the little mingers  :roflanim: :roflanim:
Always have been, always will be, a WYSIWYG - black is black, white is white - no grey in my life! But I'm mellowing in my old age
